The LCD search tools offer a fast, direct way for providers to search for LCDs. Providers may search by LCD ID, keyword (title only), or HCPCS code to find LCDs instantly.
Note: The LCD search tools look for a direct match of what is in the results table; multiple keyword searches are not available. To search using multiple keywords, including diagnosis codes, please refer to entire site search feature below.
Not all codes have a policy associated with it. When billing codes that do not have policies, just be sure that it is a valid code and you follow all Medicare guidelines.
Providers in need of locating LCDs by multiple keywords or diagnosis code have a simple way to do so by using First Coast Service Options’ (First Coast) website search functionality.
Simply enter keywords or ICD-10 codes into the website search bar and search using the “LCDs only” filter to find the matching results.
In addition to using the search tools, First Coast’s LCDs and the national coverage d
eterminations (NCDs) are also available using the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Medicare coverage database (MCD)
. The MCD contains all NCDs and LCDs, local articles, and proposed NCD decisions.
First Coast Service Options (First Coast) strives to ensure that the information available on our provider website is accurate, detailed, and current. Therefore, this is a dynamic site and its content changes daily. It is best to access the site to ensure you have the most current information rather than printing articles or forms that may become obsolete without notice.
